Been tattooed and pierced here a few times now, both top quality services! They are great bunch of lads, even when it's busy everyone has such a nice and welcoming attitude, great laughs and everyone is easy to talk to! Studio is always clean, and the variety of art styles is great too! Something for everyone and they sell amazing after care products. Will always come back!

Got my nostril pierced here, everything was clearly explained to me beforehand. Staff were very polite and friendly; they really put my mind at ease since this was the first time I've had a piercing done here. The piercer was very thorough with cleaning procedures and very sure of what he was doing in general. Smiley Dogg is definitely where I'll be going for the rest of my piercings.

I've been in three times now to the lads here. Stand up professionals everytime. So friendly, not intimidating (getting your first tattoo can be a scary deal.) I recommend Hipos myself, his work is excellent and he is so quick, so any discomfort passes very quickly. I have sampled a few ink shops in Cork in my day and Smiley Dogg remains my no. 1 recommendation. They are usually booked out weeks in advance and rarely have the room for walk ins. That should tell you all you need to know. 10 outta 10

I´ve been to a lot of studios in my life and this one is by far the best one I´ve attended. Very professional and very clean. The piercer was a lovely guy, very helpful, just a lovely place to go, overall just a great experience.

In my opinion, it´s the best tattoo studio in Cork city at the moment. Great at hyper-realism and neotraditional specially among other styles. They are several tattooers so they cover pretty much any style. Friendly service and reliable professionals. Seriously stunning art in fairness.
